saudi nationals there widespread reports that wealthy donors in saudi arabia had been funding the isis throughout their fight in syria and beyond riyadh may now say that it has nothing to do with the rise of this radical group that it itself is spread by it but it. helped create the floors in ways more than just providing funding and fighters they need to think. that. and i think give the wahhabi to saudi arabia means studio. a lot of their teaching go to do that to you. just in the span of several years bolstered by the fight against assad in syria the isis has advanced so far as to declare an islamic caliphate across the territories that it now controls both iraq and syria the question is what the saudi arabia sees the isis as a serious threat it has warned against foreign military into ference in iraq and
